Congrats on your good taste! A wedding held in the Dandenong Ranges is about as whimsical and close to the beauty of nature you can ask for. Take your pick of floral delights in warmer months or wait for the Winter misty skies that give a deeper meaning to the phrase ‘Perfect day for a white wedding’.
We’ve lined up the three very cool wedding venues, plus the best Melbourne wedding entertainment. If you want to wow and surprise your guests, why not get one of our Hey Jack wedding DJ’s and then add a Saxophonist, just because you can? Treat yourself we say! Feeling a more classic vibe? Our wedding band music with acoustic musicians make up some of the best Melbourne acoustic soloist, duo and even trios you’ll find.
The Best Dandenong Ranges Wedding Venues
OLINDA YARRA, DANDENONG RANGES
Rich in history, this venue is family owned and heritage-listed with over 150 years of history – so get ready for that rustic charm. Acres of century-old gardens and green pastures stretch as far as the eye can see. If you crave a relaxed wedding that looks amazing without trying too hard, this is your place.
Guests can play lawn games, chill on a marquee lounge, and if you get really lucky a cute little duck or cow might try to photobomb (there are miniature ponies, alpacas and chickens too)! The final note? Some excellent wedding entertainment of course! Set the scene in style with a classic Melbourne acoustic duo or trio who know all your favourite songs (our own Romy will nail the brief). Then Hey Jack’s Sax Appeal wedding band can create the perfect party atmosphere later in the night.
TATRA RECEPTION, DANDENONG RANGES
We know you love a bit of choice! At Tatra Receptions, you can have your ceremony indoors at the light-filled Chapel. Floor to ceiling windows provide views of the Dandenong Ranges forest. But, you can also marry outside in a luscious garden in a gazebo or wrought iron cupola. Your reception will feel luxe!
The ballroom (yes, ballroom) has spectacular views of the gardens and furnished with chandeliers, imported Napoleon banquet chairs, Calcutta marble bars and much more! Now, picture walking down the aisle to the beautiful vocals of our acoustic wedding soloist or duo. Later, cut some shapes on the dancefloor while a Melbourne wedding DJ brings you the best sound.
AVALON CASTLE, DANDENONG RANGES
This multi-award-winning venue sits high atop a picturesque two-acre property. Everything you need is right here in one location, including gardens that look gorgeous all year round and on-site accommodation for the bridal party and guests in quaint bluestone cottages. Have your reception outdoors under the Rose Terrace with the natural canopy of trees, and you have a big chance of being treated to native wildlife including Kookaburras. Or, say your ‘I Do’s’ in the redwood gazebo or indoor Chapel with stained glass windows. This location is perfect for our own Justin’s acoustic classic/modern mix and then a DJ experience to blow everyone away and put the seal on a magical day.
